We are having braised lamb shank this evening - looking forward to it
I should make these more often.
This reminds me of a time some years back that my father came to our house for dinner. I'd planned on making Osso Buco and risotto and ordered the shanks the night before so I could just run in, grab the meat and get home to start braising. And that's what I did.
When I got home to start cooking, I found out that instead of veal shanks, the butcher had given us lamb shanks. No time to go back and fix the problem, so scrambled for a recipe. Made braised lamb shanks with orange zest and Chianti. Stayed with the risotto. Killed it. Served with a couple of 1997 CCRs instead of the Baroli I had set aside.
Pop said it was the best lamb dish he'd ever eaten. OK.. back to your original programming.
